Lifafa Paratha | Mixed Vegetable Lifafa Paratha

Lifafa Paratha

Lifafa Paratha is a stuffed paratha made as an envelope popular in the northern states. This paratha is stuffed with a mixed vegetable filling and cooked and then stuffed.

This makes a wonderful travel food and very easy to make. Konda liked it so much that she wanted to pack this for her college.

I was very late in making it and had to hurriedly make it. So Lifafa Paratha is my choice for L in the AtoZ Flatbread and More, where I am doing AtoZ Indian Flatbread. If you are interested to know whats L in Dosa Varieties, hop over!
